    We had a wonderful Winter Boot Camp session last night!  We recorded the session (though I missed the first 30 seconds or so) and it is posted under the Resources tab.  Don't miss our next virtual meeting, with Mr. and Mrs. T on tour on January 9th.  Go to the events calendar to sign up!

    Well it took awhile, but Tesla has finally developed a new owner orientation class for Model 3/Y owners.  These classes will be conducted by the various owners clubs around the world.

    As Tesla's official program Partner in Pennsylvania, we will be conducting these new owner orientations virtually, every Wednesday at 7PM beginning January 13th.  We are so happy to be able to provide these classes for new owners as they pick up their vehicles.  We will be working closely with both the Devon and Wexford Centers to make sure that all new owners have access to the classes.

    As we all know, our cars are amazing but there is so much to learn if we are going to be able to take full advantage of the technology.

    If you haven't heard of Mr and Mrs T, they are a couple from Switzerland who decided to quit their jobs and do a 40,000 mile EV road trip across four continents.  They have written a book about their adventure called #Recharge, The Ultimate EV Travel Guide (now available in our club store).  We are very excited to be hosting this meeting and it looks like several other Owners Clubs will be joining us for this event on January 9th!!!  Go to our event calendar to register!

    We had a great Tech Talk last night on FSD. We had two special guests, William Masterson, Program Manager of the Official Owners Club Program for Tesla and Jeff Cadman , VP of the Tesla Owners Club of Maryland (and an FSD beta tester). If you missed it, we recorded the session and it is available for club members under Tech Talks.

    If you haven't registered yet, you don't want to miss the Winter Boot Camp session scheduled for 12/29. You can register for that class also on the tocpa,club website under events.

    Hey everyone! It's that time of year again!

    Next week, our area will begin to see inclement weather with predictions for freezing rain and snow.

    This should serve as a reminder to check your tires, and react accordingly.

    If you have summer/performance tires, you absolutely should have a plan to switch to either winter tires or all-season tires for the winter driving season.

    Check your tread depth, and consider a rotation if you have uneven wear between your front and back tires. If your wear is uneven from side-to-side or you have "cupping" on your tires, then you may need an alignment.

    While our cars are largely maintenance-free, tires are still a major consumable for any vehicle. Bad tires are one of the leading factors in preventable accidents in poor driving conditions.

    Also this is a good time to make sure your wipers are up to par, and that you have no issues with your car's ability to defrost the windows and mirrors.

    Lastly, be aware of the changes that cold temperatures and poor conditions have on regenerative braking. The cold temperatures, just like high battery state-of-charge, will reduce the strength of your vehicle's regenerative braking, meaning increased natural stopping distance (without hitting the brakes).

    (Barry Robertson's post) In my case, I will be switching from my summer performance tire/wheel set onto my winter tires that reside on my Model 3's aero wheels. I have been watching the weather to make sure we had a good consistent break in temperatures below 40 before doing so - and it seems like next week is the time that will occur for the majority of the Pennsylvania coverage area.
